    Abstract : Patients undergoing major abdominal surgery were randomly given total intravenous anaesthesia based on propofol and fentanyl, anaesthesia based on propofol, fentanyl and nitrous oxide or anaesthesia based on isoflurane and fentanyl. Postoperative atelectasis demonstrated by computed tomography of the chest was found to a similar extent and a similar decrease in arterial oxygen pressure was seen in the groups. READ MORE

    Abstract : Every day, general anaesthetics are given to a large number of patients around the world but the cellular mechanisms of how anaesthetics act are still not clear. General anaesthetics cause the intended unconsciousness, amnesia and immobility in patients, but also side effects such as a decrease in mean arterial pressure and arrhythmia, both of which contribute to complications such as heart damage and stroke.

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; propofol;

    Abstract : Propofol is one of the most used intravenous anaesthetics in the western world. It is often used for ambulatory surgery due to favourable pharmacokinetic properties allowing quick onset and short emergence time. However, there is considerable interindividual variation in pharmacokinetics and dynamics as well as gender differences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental and clinical studies on the antiemetic effects of propofol

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is still a clinical problem and its incidence is unacceptably high. After the introduction of propofol as an agent for induction and maintenance of anesthesia, it was reported that the incidence of PONV was lower. It was also proposed that propofol possesses antiemetic effects. READ MORE
